We have a few ways to become a member.
– You can join and learn as you go while playing on a team in the league.
– You can try the sport out as stated below to determine if you like the sport, and then join. Your Learn to Curl fees can be applied to your membership.
– First time curlers will have a reduced fee for membership.
– You can be an associate member which provides member benefits without weekly league playing. You can play in club Friendly bonspiels and join any club social events. As members of the curling associations, you can play in outside bonspiels as well.
Here is the 2016-2017 LICC Membership Application
To try out the sport:
1) Open House – an introduction to the sport. Budget about 50 minutes from your starting time (you will be on the ice for 20-30 minutes). Please make a reservation and we will confirm your starting time.
You will be introduced to the sport of curling, learning how to deliver and sweep, along with other basic parts of the sport. You will then use your new skills to try a delivery to a curling house.
2) Learn to Curl – a more intensive preview. 2-session class; budget 2 and 1/2 hours per session.
At a learn to curl, you will work though all the techniques needed for curling, game strategy, and play a couple of ends of a real game. It is recommended that you first attend an open house, although it is not necessary. Depending on skill level and time, you will play more or fewer ends of a real game.
For either session, remember to wear warm, loose-fitting clothes; thin gloves are recommended; and wear flat, gripping thick-soled tennis type shoes with warm socks (no shape-ups, heels, or sandals). No other equipment is necessary.
